This is a modern flip (OEM) clock, based on an actual “Habitat” clock.
The actual clock (not the flaps, only the hours, minutes and seconds hands) is animated. The hands are connected with wire parameters.
The clock is a group of objects. Every part of the clock is a different object.
The user can set the time to anything they want, this way:
1) select the hour hand
2) right click on the rotate tool
3) select the “world” coordinate system
4) set a value in the Rotation/Relative/Y, keeping in mind that every 360 degrees is one minute (you actually rotate the seconds hand, although you have selected the hours hand). For example, setting the Y relative rotation to 21600 (which is 60 times 360), will set the time to 01hr00’00’’
After setting the time, you just need to press “play” and see the clock’s hands animate in a realistic way, for as long as the animation’s duration is set to.
To change the values displayed on the flaps (the flaps are not animated, you need only change their material’s diffuse texture), just select any of them and display the selected object’s material in the material editor. You’ll find that the flaps’ and materials’ objects are named in a helpful way.
You can change any color on every part of the clock. The flaps’ materials are VrayBlend materials, which allows you to change the character’s and background’s material and blend those two using the blend map. The blend maps are b&w textures, that I include in the product. To change the color of the glass you just need to change the “fog color” in the glass material’s settings. Makin it white will make it colorless. Making it more saturated will make it more densely colored.
If you are using a renderer other than Vray, you can recreate the materials and still use these textures in a similar way.
NOTICE 1: the preview images (except from the signature image and the turntable) use a wall with a wall texture as a background and an hdri file for the illumination of the scene. The wall, it’s texture and the hdri ARE NOT INCLUDED in this product and where used only to better show how the model would render in an actual scene. The product includes only the clock, a VrayCamera and 2 VrayLights.
NOTICE 2: Included in the file TurbosquidDelivery.rar are the .max file with a texture set (you can change the textures with others included in the textures.rar file), and 3 other file formats (which do not maintain the wire parameters for the clock's hand rotation): obj, 3ds and fbx.
I hope you enjoy this product :-)
